‘Mob’ or ‘Mop’ cap

Borrowed from Penkhull panto, caps for the female cast members of a Christmas Carol. But are they Mob or Mop Caps? I can never remember! I know they seem to get used in performances from mediaeval to victorian times, but I’m not sure how realistic they are. They are quite comfortable to wear, but they won’t have had elastic in them, maybe drawstrings?
